Preparing the greenhouse for moving

greenhouse-moving

This is the greenhouse that set on the south side of the farmstand and was used for plant sales and this year acted as a stopgap register checkout area.

I am the lucky recipient of this old greenhouse, I am moving it to my house (simon talking) where I will grow veggies for my self and do some experiments of new crops, such as figs and tioba this season.

This is where our store will sit until we lightly renovate it for affordable housing of farm employees.

A strange view of the back half of the store about to be moved.

We had to roll the building off its foundation and onto solid ground using rollers (pipes) where we could get the trailer under it to carry it away.

These parts of the building will remain and be connected to the new area.  What a strange view, it has been bittersweet for us watching this unfold.   We are fully behind the idea and the need but sad to see the old building go.  Built by us 31 years ago and cared for, loved and well used all that time.  It softens the impact of the move that we get to make the old farmstand into new housing for our farmers.

Keep checking back for more updated photo’s or just drop by, we will all be there nearly every day and are quite willing to share our ideas and plans and accept suggestions.

P.S.  Still looking for some one (preference to island farmers) to take our 12 x 16 walk in cooler, good shape, comes with or with out the cooler shed for outdoor use.  Can load or possibly deliver.
